A typesetting error occurred in the second letter in this cluster (3 June, p 1466). The end of the fourth paragraph should have stated that Britain has more than 200 hospices with over 3000 inpatient beds [not 300 as published] for a population of 50 million.

Owing to an editorial error, two of the authors of the second letter in this cluster were omitted and the letter was published as being solely from Kalevi Laitinen (3 June, pp 1469-70). The three authors should have been Eliisa Loyttyniemi, biostatistician; Kalevi Laitinen, medical adviser, and Juhani Tuominen, senior biostatistician, who are all from Leiras Oy at the address published.
